Chateau Cardboard Storage

once upon a time (actually only a few years ago) I worked in the wine industry. For 15 years. I absolutely loved it, and it turned me into a complete wine snob.

Well, at the time I got a lot of free or discounted wine, and was paid relatively well, so I could afford to be a wine snob.

Then I got a job outside the industry. I love it more than life itself, but it doesn’t pay well nor does it come with a wine allowance.

So I am humbly reduced to drinking wine out of a box. Yup, to the horror of my old winey friends, I drink chateau cardboard.

As with anything we consume, it creates rubbish. However, a 2L cask of wine is actually awesomely sized. The box makes super storage, and I have used tons of them for storing my craft supplies! (And no, I am not telling you how long it took to drink that many casks of wine.)


I have decorated these in various ways, but one of the simplest was with some cowhide contact.


Looks pretty good, no?

    this is so inspiring …in our local supermarket there are always unflattened boxes in case anyone needs them and on a number of occasions I have taken wine boxes to cover them up and make a larger than normal gift box … these will look great on the shelves in my sewing room! thank you for sharing … 🙂
